Knowing what to wear to interviews when applying for jobs such as graphic designer and copywriter can be tricky because the creative world dress code varies from company to company. The great thing about the creative sphere is that you have the chance to express your individuality and really show who you are. Just make sure your outfit isn't too distracting: "You risk sensory overload with an arm full of jangling bracelets or the interviewer's preoccupation with wondering, 'Is that a bird in her hair?'" says Williams.

You've got a stellar resumé and references up the wazoo, but when you head into a job interview, your appearance dictates how it will go. "It takes about 2.2 seconds to make a first impression, and what you're wearing is a huge non-verbal and often subconscious way of ensuring the interviewer thinks you are a great fit," says Nicole Williams, LinkedIn's Connection Director. She adds, "Speaking of fit, regardless of industry or what you wear, fit is the key to looking your best." By Lauren Le Vine, REDBOOK.
